The main goal of this project is to realize advanced encryption technologies for specialized applications, such as key-dependent message (KDM) or related-key attack (RKA) security. A growing number of applications demand stronger security from encryption schemes than what is guaranteed by the classical encryption methods. This project will provide new encryption technologies that satisfy these more stringent security requirements. More specifically, the research will obtain new encryption schemes that remain secure even when the adversary can get access to some information about the secret key itself.
